"Inspired by the strong American presence at the 1964 Venice Biennale, the Italian photographer Ugo Mulas made three extended visits to New York over the following years. The result, a massive, handsomely designed volume called New York: The New Art Scene, captures the art world at one of its most volatile and vivid peaks. ... The artists posed for Mulas--and the book is peppered with terrifically dashing portraits--but more often they went about their business, making art, making dinner, entertaining, carrying on. With more than 500 photos reproduced in heavily inked, knockout black and white, the book has a marvelous scope."--The Book of 101 Books : Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century / Edited by Andrew Roth. New York: PPP Editions in association with Ruth Horowitz, 2001.
